Say "NO" to Unlimited

Banyak sekali perusahaan hosting atau web developer yang menawarkan "unlimited" space dan "unmetered" bandwidth pada calon pelanggan nya.

Mengapa kami tidak?

Kami mengusung pentingnya transparansi pada pelanggan kami. Kebanyakan paket "unlimited" untuk space dan bandwidth akan tetap membatasi pengguna nya dan cenderung overselling pada servernya.
Misal, satu reseller atau perusahaan webhosting/web developer memiliki/menyewa/membeli space (contoh sebuah VPS atau Dedicated Server) dari data center sebesar 100Gb webspace dengan 1000Gb bandwith dan memiliki 8 core CPU. Adalah fair bila web hoster/web developer tersebut menjual 1Gb space dengan 10Gb badhwidth untuk 100 pelanggan. Namun dengan diberikan nya "Unlimited" webspace dan badhwidth, maka tanpa ditentukannya jumlah besaran oleh web hoster/web developer, bisa jadi satu server tersebut dijejalkan sebanyak 200 pengguna yang mana kondisi ini disebut server overselling.
Bila website anda hanya memerlukan space kecil (static website dengan sedikit gambar dan media) dan sedikit pengunjung (misal hanya 1-5 orang per hari), tentunya tidak akan menjadi gangguan signifikan bagi Anda untuk tetap menggunakan fitur "unlimited" seperti ini. Namun bila Anda ingin menjaga kualitas dan mengharapkan banyak pengunjung yang datang serta mengupload banyak media atau gambar di situs Anda, hindarilah iming-iming "unlimited webspace" dan "unmetered bandwith" karena akan mengganggu kestabilan website Anda akibat server overselling.
Pada awalnya website Anda akan berjalan amat lancar dan cepat namun seiring waktu, akan terjadi penurunan performance.
Berikut kami berikan contoh kerancuan "Paket Unlimited" yang kami temukan (klik untuk memperbesar) :


sedangkan saat kami melihat ke Terms & Conditions dari paket yang dimaksud, kami menemukan hal berikut ini :

7a.) Resource Usage
User may not:
    Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 30 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
    Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
    Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
    Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
    Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.
    Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
    Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc
    Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
    Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
    When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include("http://yourdomain.com/include.php") use include("include.php")
    To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
    Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.

7b.) INODES
The use of more than 250,000 inodes on any shared account may potentially result in a warning first, and if no action is taken future suspension. Accounts found to be exceeding the 100,000 inode limit will automatically be removed from our backup system to avoid over-usage, however databases will still be backed up. Every file (a webpage, image file, email, etc) on your account uses up 1 inode.
Sites that slightly exceed our inode limits are unlikely to be suspended; however, accounts that constantly create and delete large numbers of files on a regular basis, have hundreds of thousands of files, or cause file system damage may be flagged for review and/or suspension. The primary cause of excessive inodes seems to be due to users leaving their catchall address enabled, but never checking their primary account mailbox. Over time, tens of thousands of messages (or more) build up, eventually pushing the account past our inode limit. To disable your default mailbox, login to cPanel and choose "Mail", then "Default Address", "Set Default Address", and then type in: :fail: No such user here.

7c.) Backup Limit
Any shared account using more than 5 gigs of disk space will be removed from our weekly backup with the exception of Databases continuing to be backed up. All data will continue to be mirrored to a secondary drive which helps protect against data loss in the event of a drive failure.

8.) Bandwidth Usage
You are allocated a monthly bandwidth allowance. This allowance varies depending on the hosting package you purchase. Should your account pass the allocated amount we reserve the right to suspend the account until the start of the next allocation, suspend the account until more bandwidth is purchased at an additional fee, suspend the account until you upgrade to a higher level of package, terminate the account and/or charge you an additional fee for the overages. Unused transfer in one month cannot be carried over to the next month.

Padahal sudah jelas - jelas di state kan di feature paket tersebut sebelumnya bahwa paket tersebut mendapatkan unlimited bandwidth dan unlimited webspace.

Itu hanyalah satu ilustrasi saja, kami tidak mencantumkan siapa hosting tersebut untuk menghormati privasi mereka.

Di lain sisi, rata - rata paket unlimited ditawarkan amat sangat murah dibanding paket biasa, dan "mengundang" hacker serta spammer untuk ikut mendaftar di server tersebut. Tentunya anda tidak mau IP website anda ikut di blacklist oleh situs pencari seperti Google atau email anda di reject oleh auto antispam dari email pelanggan karena berada satu server dengan para hacker dan spammer di dunia maya, bukan? :-)

Olehkarenanya, kami amat sangat tidak menyarankan anda untuk menggunakan paket unlimited webspace dan unlimited/unmetered bandwidth di mana pun berdasarkan banyaknya riset yang dilakukan oleh rekan kami baik dalam negeri maupun mancanegara.
